PAOLO PAGANI

Castello Valsolda 1661 - 1716 Milan
Paolo Pagani mainly worked in Venice and Milan as a historical painter. In 1692, on a commission issued by the Prince Bishop Karl of Liechtenstein, he went to Kromeriz in Moravia to decorate a room of the residence there with frescos. However, these were destroyed in a fire in 1752. In Velehrad monastery he executed the dome and vault paintings, which have since been painted over, as well as the high altar painting.

Employing a dynamic conception of the human body, he set an innovative tone to Venetian painting of the 17th and 18th centuries. His concept of art is reflected in the work of Gian Battista Piazzetta.
